I've been to this japanese restaurant several times. They serve a sesame seaweed salad that is so good! It tastes like it has a cellophane noodle in it. Does anyone have a recipe for this??

Thanks... (

I think this may be what you are looking for. I've never made it, but I found this recipe. It may be difficult to find fresh wakame. I'm going to try making it, I love the stuff!

60 grams fresh wakame seaweed
3 tablespoons vinegar
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
dash salt
3 tablespoons dashi stock
kinome sprigs for garnish

Wash fresh wakame seaweed well and boil lightly. Briefly immerse in water to improve color, remove roots and shred.

Mix vinegar dressing.

Wash kinome sprigs and drain.

Drain wakame seaweed and serve, pour vinegar dressing over and put kinome sprigs on top.

I would highly recommend adding a generous sprinkling of gomasio or a T. of sesame seeds and a splash of umeboshi vinegar to that recipe. It will be delicious! Believe it or not, this is something that shirataki or kelp noodles works well in too!
